I had the dreaded seat back problem with my Jr Z when I purchased it. Maybe I was lucky but all I did was take the hinges totally apart, clean them very, very well, relubricate them, and put them back together. They've worked perfectly for the last seven years. I think the problem was the result of old sticky grease in the latch mechanism and the gears/levers/springs which control it. Some of the parts are small and if they get stuck in the wrong position, the latch doesn't work properly.
I hope you're as lucky as I was.
